Women Chefs

When this year’s James Beard award winners were announced, it was hard to ignore the fact that they were all men. Joining us to talk about why women only hold one-tenth of executive-level chef positions in the United States are: Joyce Goldstein, James Beard award winner and current James Beard award committee member, food journalist Laura Shapiro, author of the book Perfection Salad: Women and Cooking at the Turn of the Century, and Anita Lo, executive chef of the Michelin-starred restaurant Annisa and a former Iron Chef winner.
